    My original Wii broke and I bought another. Is there anyway I can get the $100 worth of games back without paying for them again? Microsoft and Sony allow you to redownload the games YOU PAID for.

    I know that Nintendo says if your Wii Shop account is deleted/removed you lose all your games. I have also heard (sorry, can't remember where exactly) that if you run into problems to give Nintendo a call. If anyone can help you, they can.

    Hopefully this helps. Please don't hesitate to PM me if you have any questions. :)

    Nintendo should hook you up seeing as this is a fault of theirs, but the problem may lie in the fact that there may be no proof of the games you had. Did you send the broken one to them? If it was still under warranty, even if you didn't, they still may be able to do something for you in the matter; as far as getting back what you paid for with the games, maybe if you call and talk it out with them and get the old one to them, there should be no reason for them not to help you; this is probably not the first time this problem has come up.

    Why did you buy another one? The Wii has a one year warranty. You could have gotten it fixed for free (unless it was broken because of something that voided the warranty).

    You can in that case send it in to get it fixed, and then turn around and sale it for plenty of money to get all your VC games back and then some.

    One YEAR?

    'Scuse me?

    I was under the impression that you got 30 days when you bought it, and then 60 more days if you registered it.

    Do I really get a year? Plus 2 months for registering it?

    The 30 Days (I think) When you buy the store warranty thing, but the console it self has like a year (I think) or its the other way around lol. Sorry if this post doesn't help

    EDIT: Yeah the Console itself has 1 Year Warranty (send it back to Nintendo way)

    HARDWARE WARRANTY
    Nintendo of America Inc. ("Nintendo") warrants to the original purchaser that the hardware product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for twelve (12) months from the date of purchase. If a defect covered by this warranty occurs during this warranty period, Nintendo or a NINTENDO AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER will repair the defective hardware product or component, free of charge. The original purchaser is entitled to this warranty only if the date of purchase is registered at point of sale or the consumer can demonstrate, to Nintendo's satisfaction, that the product was purchased within the last 12 months.

    Did you save any of those channels on an sd card? Maybe that could be enough proof.

    And if you register your Wii with Nintendo, they add another 90 days to that 1 year warranty.

    you can delete channels then redownload them for free, so their must be a record somewhere in their system
    if you registered your wii at nintendo.com?

    All of my games are registered at www.mynintendo.com They can clearly see that I paid for all my games. The old one broke but it was because it fell off the shelf. I dont think Nintendo will cover that lol.

    I sent an email to Nintendo and I will post their reply in this thread. Hopefully it will help others in the same situation.

    I think that you only get a warranty if you buy one when you purchase the system. Then if you register it you get an extended month or something.

    Lol. I find this funny. If you bought games using a credit card, Nintendo can look up your account. They will probably do something, like cancel the previous Wii system. Unless you sold it to someone else. In that case... lol.

    why shouldnt he get the games he paid for them. thats why microsoft and sony allow you to redownload. the purchases u make have nothing to do with the system wether you voided your warranty or not.

    if you have a nintendo.com or co.uk account and it was linked to your wii then you should have all your games just re-link your account and i think everything that you had you can download thwm again for free but i'm not sure

    It's the standard Nintendo warranty. It's all over the paperwork that come with the system and on their website too. It's not anything extra you have to buy.

    Ok here is an update.

    Both my old and new Wii's are registered under mynintendo.com. My profile shows all the games that I have purchased.

    I decided to just call up Nintendo and talk to somebody. This was actually very easy to do and I talked to an AMERICAN!!!!! She said normally they dont replace games but since I had so many and my accounts are all legit her superivisor is going to see if there is a way to get my games on my new wii without having to pay for them again. I should hear back from them tonight or tomorrow.
